us today. [applause] throughout our history, safety and security has always been our priority. safety and security of our passengers, and safety of our employees. we are building on that commitment by commissioning what is the first fire rescue boat house facility on the west coast of the united states. more simply -- [airplane noise] we are at an airport. this is the first marine emergency response facility on the west coast. more simply, we can call it the first fireboat house at an airport. it is a core value for the airport team that we have worked together to provide an exceptional airport, that we are innovating, and that we work in partnership. this is a partnership between the fire department and the airport. great project work by airport staff and the division of design and construction, who designed this building. the engineering staff support to the work. the architectural team and the design and construction staff -- i would like to recognize all the staff involved in the successful project. [applause] completed on budget, and one month ahead of schedule. we have an outsta
for this project. this hearing again gives us the opportunity to hear about one of the two top issues of concerns for constituents in the south beach rincon hill and mission bay neighborhood. the first that we occurred was transportation. this area is already a neighborhood that is quite impacted by the regular traffic of workers and commuters onto the bay bridge as well as the 2 80. we have a lot of questions in terms of what this new arena -- what is really the assessed impact that we believe might occur and what types of investments do we as a city need to make to address the demands. we have some of the highest collisions between pedestrians and vehicleses in the south of market. so, how will this project impact those rates? second, we asked questions whether we can support bike infrastructure in that neighborhood to increase bike circulation so folks can bike to and [speaker not understood]. third, we have questions about what public transit investment costs are and to meet the demands of additional gains in this neighborhood. we've already seen what muni has been able to do with giants home
we handle drug enforcement here in california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population o
about next year. this gives us plenty time what water taxis mean by the time it is open in 2017, 2018. >> thank you. i just want to say i think this is a truly critical part of this development as we move forward and i appreciate the work that is happening in this area. i know that supervisor wiener has some questions, but i just want to make sure that we continue to look at this, one of the top concerns of course are we going to be able to [speaker not understood] to meet this need and how do we serve it, but also not impact other parts of the city as well. and then how can we also enhance some of the existing issues that already exist in the neighborhood even without the warriors arena that have safety issues, the bike access as well as other public transit. you i really look forward to working with you and the mta as we move forward with this. i believe supervisor wiener has questions as well. * >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you for that presentation, mr. albert. very much appreciate it. the plan seems like solid in many ways but in the linchpin to all of this is muni. i'm hope
provided in the approval for the use for this very type of pilot, that in fact it was found the funding at the request of someone in fact commissioner tiny of marin, so that this kind of a pilot that we're talking about could be funded with this money. so the idea that was put out there, that somehow this is not what this funding was intended for, respectfully is not happened at the mtc. but the main point that i want to make is this. you know, i don't know that anyone herei0÷s=úÑ questions the importance of investing in the maintenance of muni, and improving the reliability of the system, and making sure that we have a system that works for every rider. but the notion that we have to choose between that and actually making public transit affordable to low income kids, to me, is a false choice. the two are not mutually exclusive. in fact, as mr. reiskin himself noted during the hearing, and as was noted during the presentation of the tpi funding, the money that has been allocated for san francisco, it's money that can be used for different things. and the fact that the mta board of d
us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles definitely need to be treated differently, and certainly her
. a lot of students inform us they cannot use their tuition fees or tuition things to housing. they actually still have to get a job. so, there is a need for affordable housing for families, students, seniors and everyone. therefore, that's why we worked diligently with our allies and you supervisors to ensure that we have a cap to really see and analyze that this is a need. and we really appreciate you hearing our concerns and we look forward to working with the planning staff to actually look over those analysis. thank you again and we hope to -- that you support this legislation. >> thank you. i don't have any other cards. so, if anyone after mr. cohen is interested in speaking, you can just go ahead and line up. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. tim cohen on behalf of the housing action coalition. i'd like to support the proposed legislation for new housing product efficiency dwelling units with one important exception. we have said repeatedly that edus are a logical necessary response for badly needed new housing in an extremely expensive housing market. edus have long bee
you. you have done a great job in bringing us to this point and i look forward to your leadership going forward. this is to extend the deadline. that's all. a motion and second. do we have people who want to speak in moving the deadline? >> good afternoon. -- malik again, long-time driver. moving the deadline is fine with me. directors, you missed me by this much, to accommodate drivers like me you need to increase the number to 350. my position is 542. i have been driving for 24 years continuously. on the list 14 years,thank you for the years of my service, that is not enough for my family. -- i was promised a peak-time medallion. in the end they missed the again. why am i being so hated? what am i doing wrong here? why am i not heard? it's not fair! i protest! i protest! i protest. you forsake me. you pushed me against the wall to take legal action against youand sfmta staff. if i have to do it alone, i'm going to do it. >> the meeting will come to order. good afternoon, everyone. it's monday, november 19, 2012. this is the land use and economic development committee of the s
for those poor little whatevers that are difrplt than us, but we are all equal. the third one is working together and i think about the giants, we're all for the team, not all together not as if we are color blind and color doesn't exist but with our diversity. the fourth is with power and authority, the person who stands up and says this is what needs to happen, like a school principal who says we're not going to let kids go around the school saying that's okay, all these things are needed. >> i like that, that's great. something that really resonated with me that tom said, if you simply tolerate diversity you are aspiring to mediocrity. can you talk about the ambassadors, adults taking an active role to intervene when we witness bullying. >> all of us are humbled by the virus, how systemic it's become. how do you get your hands around that? for me it's top down and bottom up. we are authority figures and what we do for our children and that's care, but we need to empower them to become the leaders they are waiting to become. this notion of youth adult partnership is esoteric in its
.7 million in regional transit performance initiative funding. this funding is to be used for improving reliability. there is no more effectiveádz-zy to chief these goals, this funding should be dedicated 100% to improving muni's deteriorating reliability by purchasing muni vehicles and improving muni's operations. the resolution i sponsored and that is before us today to provides. the mta board of directors is considering a proposal to use a portion of this region a funding not for improving muni's reliability for the youth. i've been public in my skepticism of the free muni for youth program. my skepticism is based on the funding needs and deficit and my belief that the funding will come from muni operating money. worry now seeing that's the case, that muni is considering using some of this maintenance money for the free muni program rather than to invest in the system, purchase vehicles, rehabilitate vehicles, and over-wise make the system more reliable. once a free muni pilot program ends there will be enormous pressure to extend the program and that pressure almost certainly will
us? we been halted by the long, but this time of what to document every step of the way. one of my triplet sons was taken out of football because of concussions years ago. now knowing what i know, the game can be made safer. the game is being made safer. so very quickly what we did is we parachuted into oklahoma. we've been following 18 for the entire season. we started in february at each monthly visit them for a week. we've been filming them. their concussion rate has plummeted to we put together our risk management program, 15 different steps. we have a celeron matters, hit sensors on their helmet at the high school level, so we are tracking heads. we are tracking everything that these boys walk we been able to get them. no helmets, not just a correct fit but how to measure it. most import message i have is that the kids want these ether and their helmet or as an earbud or mouthpiece. they want that responsibility taken away from themselves. so right now they are underreported and this this is really helping. >> let me bring bill maher to this conversation. as we mentioned as an
for us to commit resources as a city is really important. and what i understand of this item is that there is a discussion about whether or not to tie the funding that's underlying this item to the rainy day fund. and to the extent that happens, to the extent that there is a connection between this appropriation and the rainy day fund, i will not support it. the rainy day fund was created for the very purpose of this city making public education a priority. the rainy day fund, as was enacted by the board of supervisors, as was crafted by then supervisor ammiano has to stand on its own terms, it has its own triggers, its own mechanisms for deciding what exactly the school district gets. and to the extent that we are trying to use this supplemental appropriation as a09( #ta way of minimizing the amount given to the school district through the rainy day fund i have a problem with that. so to the extent that this item comes back to us in the form where it is tied to the rainy day fund, i will not be supporting it, and i would encourage parents and folks in the public school commu
. this is the land use and economic development committee of the san francisco board of supervisors. my name is eric mar, i'm the chair of the committee. to my left is supervisor scott wiener. supervisor maly a cohen is absent today. our clerk is derek evans. mr. evans, can you please give us the announcements? >> yes. please make sure all electronic devices are off, copies submitted to the clerk. items acted upon today will appear on december 4, 2012 san francisco board of supervisors agenda unless stated. >> thank you. we have six items on the agenda today. but i've been notified by supervisor olague, item number 5, she has urged us to continue that to item on the call of the chair. that is the resolution to remove all management proposals and activities derived from the sharp park conceptual restoration alternatives report's alternative a18 from the environmental impact report for the san francisco recreation and park department's significant natural resource areas management plan, and to consider proposals and alternatives for the future of sharp park golf course through a separate and complete
. the 6.7 million that is allocated for this project, 22% is going to be used for pilot project for the free muni for youth. the other 76%'s going to be used for maintenance. i don't know why. supervisor scott wiener is youth. this is something that we should consider as an important issue for our community. looking at the demographics, in terms of people opposing this project, just white women, rich, and majority of people of low income folks here, they support this project. i don't believe that this is something that is unsustainable. i think that the equity is there. there is funding for it. it's a pilot project that we can go forward and have it move -- be implemented. my last thing is that we should change the way we think in this city. this city is for everybody. we have to recognize san francisco values. we have to support everyone, not just blacks, latinos, asians, lives here. the way the debate was going, it's so racist and prejudicial. we have to stop the discrimination thing in the ci city. >> supervisor wiener: is there any additional public comment? okay. mr. chairm
new hybrid buses that will be coming to us this spring, an exceptionally fast procurement cycle by previous standards. thanks to john haley's leadership, to significantly streamline that process and get those buses much sooner than we would have otherwise. he also have -- you also have approved contract for rehab of a bunch of our existing buses in addition to the lrv fleet we have programmed which i'll speak about in a moment. in these overhaul projects we're identifying the components on the vehicles that are the most prone to failure, getting them replaced or rehabilitated. the results so far, the ones that come out of rehab for backup, for lack of a better term, perform much better than the rest of the group which has direct impact on the performance of the system. and the new buses you approved were hybrid buses. we have trolley bus procurement coming right on the heels of that. estate division as well as with the union on making sure we have adequate restroom facilities for operators. it may seem not very much related, but having decent, clean, safe rrmt restrooms for r op
that can use some revitalization. the building is not being used. families will not be disappointed. i look forward to the opportunity to building new connections with a different neighborhood and enjoying the beautiful space in san francisco. i think it's a good chance for new families and new members to get involved, and to meet one another, interact, just playing soccer games, meeting at a restaurant. i believe the sensitivity of the owners and family and employees will help contain a lot of the threatening elements i'm hearing right now and i don't believe it will be a sincere issue for anybody. thank you. >> supervisor farrell: thank you very much. next speaker please. >> supervisors, thank you very much for your time. my name is greg blaine. i'm a commissioner on the assessment appeals board. i'm a trustee of the university of san francisco, and chairman of the presidio performing arts center, i'm a landlord in the marina and elsewhere. and i'm a resident at 393 marina boulevard. while i'm generally not opposed to the idea of monetizing park assets, including this one, i have some ser
this reporting. and then hopefully there will be a time when advocates and this board, land use committee, or planning and moh can come to some kind of consensus to define that housing between 120 and 150. so i think the fact that we're including it is some kind of acknowledgement that in fact this does include middle income because of, you know, some of the way it's been viewedm 4t regionally and there seems to be, in my mind, some -- still i'd just rather than-d you know, remove it, just kind of not include the name for now, and then maybe come back to that at a later time when there's more time for discussion. that's all. >> president chiu: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: thank you. amendment. i'm familiar but i just want to -- >> supervisor olague: i thought it was going to be distributed. >> supervisor kim: if someone can give me a copy that will be great. i'll say a couple of things. you know, i was hesitant a couple of weeks ago about including 120 to 150, not because i don't think we should calculate it but i was curious as to how we would calculate it. when we build
morning to all of you. happy thanksgiving to all of us. thanks so much for joining us today and spending a little time with us on this holiday morning. robin, of course, on the mend. and, robin, as always, we give thanks for you, each and every day. george and lara, also home with their families. so glad to have elizabeth vargas. bianna golodryga, here with me this morning. >> yes, we have our turkeys already in the oven. we thought we would pass by times square. >> for a couple hours. >> give you some tips how to prepare a feast. >> if you saw last year's show, i need them. >> sam champion and ginger zee are on parades this morning. sam is in philadelphia. hey, sam. at the 93rd annual thanksgiving day parade. >> good morning. >> he's already on the float. >> that's great. >> and ginger zee is at the legendary macy's thanksgiving day parade, right here in new york. hey, ginger. millions of people, on my way in this morning, i saw little kids wrapped in blankets, lining the parade routes, hoping to catch a glimpse of the famous floats and balloons. they blew them up last night outside of
counting on this; it is not his fault. there are 1000 of us like myself who are either prop k -- and you will sell medallions for an extra 100,000 and make a total of 1 million dollars off that alone. [indiscernible] of course there is a lawsuit filed by the people who want to revert to prop k, they think that what we are doing is illegal. -- -- violations of federal law and no exit strategy for the older medallion holders. some of them are 80 years old. the mantra is drive until you drop. -- -- they would cover these people within the next three years or so. i want to explain the half-price offer quickly. there is no down payment required. there is a 90,000 equity advantage; the day someone give this for half price without a down payment they can sell it and make 90,000. minus the transfer fee. also the 1000 a dollar a month upgrade; [indiscernible] i think these people don't understand that and hopefully they will give it some thought. >> chairman nolan: next speaker please. >> i was hoping to come here earlier like a couple of months ago. i was in a car accident, in a taxi h
in three years. we can get used to this. right, tito? yep. anyway the only thing i can say is thank you to these 25 guys right here. for years i took math and they told me that five time five is 25 but i think five times five is one because they showed they can play 25 as one individual and that's how they got it done. [cheers and applause] now, i'm going to talk to my family -- [speaking spanish] >> thank you. i just want to say i'm enjoying this ride. this morning and talked to sergio and got to -- i am not -- [inaudible] but i have my card so i know i'm not going to be stopped today so great pleasure to be on this side, all my teammates that make me so happy and so proud. and now the young kids are taken over and two is not enough. we are going for a three-pete. [cheers and applause] >> tito, does not want to speak spanish. okay. no problem. >> i'm legal. >> now we're going to copy up a couple of players you're going to love. >> >> [speaking spanish] let's hear it for pablo sandoval . [cheers and applause] [speaking spanish] ,. >> what's up san francisco? [cheers and applause]
. there's one more small item i want your attention on. you can use muni fast pass as a tool to teacher students accountability, responsibility and also you can use it to inspire their parents to guide the youth and the other main point is don't use it as a tool to criminalize youth like those being done in san francisco. thanks. >> supervisor wiener: thank you. next speaker. >> good morning, speakers. tenderloin youth leadership program. as part of my job i go to all high schools all over the l city recruiting kids to join the program and i hear all too much the common stories of students who can't afford to go to school, actually students that end up missing several days a year, costing the san francisco a lot of money, as we're not getting paid when they're not in school. also, so many teachers tell me how they have to take so many to help students get to school and back home to commute. it's a very unfortunate thing that i hear all too much. the 70% youth discount is just not enough. every other city provides free public transportation to and from school except this city. also, it's
>> thanks. supervisors i'm a dad, i live in the marina. my son and i use the -- field extensively. i love -- when i heard there was a proposal to put a public food facility there, everything on the water there is private. so if you're there, i coach soccer on that field. it's almost impossible to have any kind of, you know, being able to stay and enjoy the water park longer. so for a family that lives in the city, wants to stay in san francisco, it's so great that you would consider having this. i've been a patron of the mcgiven restaurants for years. they're incredibly focused and make it easy for families to come in. this is a big step. i think there will be great neighbors in the marina. they've been great neighbors on fillmore street. hopefully this will work out. thanks so much. >> thank you very much. >> good morning, supervisors. my name is ariel kelly, president of the community association, we are the resident association in the marina district. we have over 500 members and an active dues paying membership of over 200 members. i am committeing this via e-mail. originally
